The objective of this project was to collect information from North American die casting companies on new alloy compositions that might exhibit better mechanical properties than conventional aluminum die casting alloys. Cast-to-size tensile bars were produced from these alloys, and mechanical properties measured in three tempers, as-cast, T5 heat treated low temperature age and T6 heat treated solution heat treat, water quench and age. A report highlighting the accomplishments of a project which has been completed under the Casting Solutions for Readiness charter. This report provides the reader with the highlights from this project Casting Solutions for Readiness Development of Mechanical Properties for High Performance Die Casting Alloys for Specifications and Standards Design and Manufacturing Resources as well as the contributions to industry that evolved from the developed technology and how these technologies will be transitioned to benefit the DLA.
